Is this you?
Do you have a difficult time getting up in the morning? Even if you get seven or more hours of sleep, are you still tired and still dependent on coffee? Do you get lightheaded or dizzy when you stand up too fast sometimes? Around 3pm do you start feeling really tired and start craving sweets, refined carbohydrates, soda and/or coffee?
